Do you look up into the rain
by Rajesh Gurung
Close your eyes and let the strips
Of clear drops brush your soft skin
like a thousand fingertips?
Do you ever face heaven
When downy flakes descend
With your eyes open
You are flying through space
Like a lost soul
Soothed by the caress
of white fingers cold?
Do you look up at clouds of cotton
On your back, imagining they are beneath you
And you are looking down
At an abyss of sea which you could fall into?
Do you look at yourself from without
Through the eyes of another
Make an effort to learn about
What the world within has to offer?
